In my unraveling of the Feu inn mystery I never for a moment expected to flud that Francis was alive. I wag even ignorant that Felix had been to the inn on that uight. fie had ridden round the back way of the house, and as my room was over the front door I had not fteard his arrival. Under these circumstances it was easy for me to moke the mistake and think the dead man was Francis, particularly as I was misled by tho marvelous resemblance between the brothers, and, moreover, 'saw the pearl ring on the finger of the corpse. My mistake was a perfectly excusable one, and I had been confirmed in snob er- reouous belief by the adroit fashion in Which Francis, for bis own safety, kept up the deception. Now I knew the truth—that Francis was alive and Felix dead—yet as regards the name of the man who had committed the crime I was still quite in the dark. Rose Qernon knew, bnt it was questionable whether she would confess, even to save her own skin. Either she or Strent was the guilty person, as none other was in the inn at that time. Strent had vanished, but no doubt she knew his whereabouts. Tho question was whether she would tell. "Oh, she'll tell where he is, right enough," said Merrick, to whom I put this view of • the matter, "especially if she is guilty herself." '' You don't think she is the criminal, Merriok?" "There is no reason why she should not be," he replied argnmentatively. "She bad every reason to hate Felix Briarfleld. He ha<" promised to marry her and was engaged to Olivia. Quite enough reason there for a jealous worn' an such as she seems to be." Bnt she wanted Felix to Mil his brother, so that she might force him to marry her." "Yes, bnt that little arrangement did not come off. My idea is-that she saw Felix when he arrived at the inn and asked him straight out if he had ar ranged to marry Olivia. She would hear of the engagement while passing through Marshminster on her way to the lone inn. No doubt Felix lied about the matter, and she lost her temper. It may be that she did not intend to kill him, but having the poisoned arrowhead in her band had forgot how dangerous it was and threw herself on him. He put out his hand to keep her off, and to was wounded. Then he died, and, terrified at what the consequences might be, she and Strent left the inn. "But what about her blackmailing Francis?" She guessed what Francis had done and saw a chance of securing her aims by putting, the murder on to him. He bad so compromised himself by his foolish actions that of course he was afraid to denounce her." "Still, why did she want to many him? She loved Felix, not Francis.." "It's my opinion she loved neither of them," Bold Merriok dryly, "and simply wanted to marry for respectability." Do yon think she will denounce Strent?" "She'll denounce any one to save herself." "Won't yon come and hear her confession, Merriok?" "Not L A respectable practitioner like myself bos no business to be mixed op in such criminality. Hitherto I have teen the sleeping partner in this affair, and you have carried through my ideas excellently well. Continue to do so and !hen come and tell mo all about it" Very pleasant for you," I grumbled, "but I have all the hard work." Merriok laughed and pushed me out of tho door, Ho had a dozen patient*waiting and conld spare no more time. 3o said one lost Word before I left "Ob, by the way, Dunham," said ho, iftiug a wurniug forefinger, "don't rou trust that Roso Qeruou iu the least.

His faculty for learn- og things was marvelous, Decidedly, derrick should have boon a detective. Its opinion about Bone Gernou coincided with urine.

"Then we'll make Eose tell today or have her arrested " "There is uot sufficient evidence against her," objected Francis. "Yes there is. I'll take the risk of all that. Before Bose Gernoii leaves this room she has to confess the truth. It's your only chance of safety." "Bnt you don't believe I killed Felix?" "I don't, bnt tho police may. You forget how highly suspicious all your notions hove been. Rose knows you lave been passing as your brother and frill be sure to make capital out of it." "You'll see'me through, Denham?' he said, taking my hand "You can be sure of that," I answered, shaking it heartily. "I won't rest till you are safe and the murderer of your brother is in jail." "Who killed him, do you think?" "I don't know, bnt Bose does, and we'll mako her Sell." We discussed the matter extensively, bnt neither of us conld pome to any conclusion. When the clock struck noon, Rose Qernon, true to her appoint 1 ment, walked into the room. ' Without waiting for an invitation she eat down in a chair and scowled at me. "That man of yours is outside, "she said savagely. "He's been following me about everywhere and watching :uy house all night Perhaps you'll ask him to go away." "That depends on the result of this conversation. You're not out of dan ger yet, Miss. Qernon." "I am uot aware that I was ever in danger, Mr. Denham. Are you going to accuse me of killing Felix?" "I might even do that unless yon tell the truth." "Oh I" said she with a sneer, "is that your game, sir? Then suppose I do tell the truth and say you killed Felix?" "You're'quite capable of doing so, bnt no one would believe so wild a tale. I had no reason to kill Felix Briarfield." "Then what motive hod I for so doing?" "That'sbest known to yourself,"! answered tartly, weary of all this fencing. "It is waste of time talking like this," interrupted Francis. "You must be aware, Miss Qernon, that yon stand in a very dangerous position." "Not more so than yon do yourself," she replied, with superb insolence. "Pardon me, I think otherwise. By your own confession yon went down to the Fen inn to assist my brother in getting me out of the way. Yon said that last night before two witnesses—Miss Bellin and Mr. Denham." "I talked at random," abe muttered. "I did not intend that any crime should be committed." "Perhaps not Nevertheless my brother is dead, and yon know how ho died." "I know the cause of his death, but I do not know who killed him." "If yon know one thing, you must know the other." "I do not When Felix arrived, he showed Strent and I an arrowhead which he said was poisoned." "Is this the arrowhead?" I asked, producing it out of a thick piece of paper. "Yea. Where did yon get it?" "I found it in the ashes of the fireplace, where yon threw it" ' 'That is not true," said Miss Gernon angrily. *'I did not throw it into the fireplace. I never oven had it in my baud.' The idea that it was poisoned frightened me." "Pray go on with your story, Miss Goruou." "I seo you don't believe me,"she flashed out defiantly, "bnt I am telling exactly what took place. Felix said ho was going to kill his brother with tho poisoned arrowhead. I told him I would have none of that sort of thing; that I ouly consented to ploy tho port of a waiting maid iu order to deceive his brother into a meeting. I said Francis could marry Miss Bellin, and ho was to marry ma " "And after that?" "He jeered and said he intended to marry Miss Bollin. Then I grow angry and struck him."

I was hoi'ribly afraid, as I thought you or Francis would wake up and accuse mo of tho crime. Besides I could not account for my presence in that house without suspicion, BO I put on my hat and cloak and fled to Marshminster." "How did yon fly?"

However, yon did not fall into tho trap. And now," she added, standing up, "I have told 700 all May I go?" I consulted Francis with a look. He consented mutely. "Yea," I said, also rising, "yon may go, but my detective will still watch yon." "For how long?" "Till Strent is found." , "Yon think I know," oho sold, tossing her head. "You ore wrong.

Canada Hai Scented Cuban Flour Trade, MADRID, Deo. 18.— Mr. Taylor, the United States minister, held an important couferenea with Senor Griosard, minister of foreign affairs, relative to the imposition of excessive duties upon Imports into Cuba from the United States. He informed the senor he had been directed by his government to inform the government of Spain if it per- oisted in exacting these discriminating duties the action would be regarded by the president only inviting the exercise by him of the power of retaliation conferred by the act of 189D. This threat has caused a coiutnotiou in ministerial' circles. • WASHINGTON, Deo. 18.— The action of the state department indicated iu the cablegram from Madrid warning the Spanish, government of its intention to resort to retaliation should Spain con« tinue its present policy with respect to American exports to Cuba will doubtless have the effect to bring at once to a focus the long drawn out negotiations which have beau in progress with results very unsatisfactory to that government. None of our foreign relations yet have given us as mnch trouble as those with Spain. For several years this government has been urging the claims of American exporters for the remission of heavy fines and excessive taxes, amounting to about $5,000,000. These taxes and fines were imposed by the Cuban ens* touis officers -in direct violation of all treaties and absolutely without any other warrant than existing necessity for funds. The Spanish government practically admitted the justice of our claims, but failed to make restitution. Then there was the old Mora claim against Spain, already acknowledged by the Spanish government, but impossible of collection. Efforts have been made to get the first class of claims before an arbitration committee without success. While the matters were languishing under the delays peculiar to Spanish diplomacy there followed the last action by the, Spanish government, which promises to precipitate a tariff war unless -Spain comes to terms. s Canada Second the "Fin . Va-le. ' This was the imposition or ike maximum tariff on American exports to Cuba probably in retaliation for the cancellation of the reciprocity agreement entered into under the term* of the Me- Kinley act. The Spanish government has two tariff schedules, one the minimum tariff permitted to countries with » which Spain is upon amicable relations, the other the maximum imposed upon. t<'. countries which do not yield to Spanish " ; demands in the matter of dues. The- maximum tariff being imposed upon American exports had the effect to almost altogether cut them off and so exactly fnllfilled its purposes. We bad •npplied for yean the Spanish West Indies with flour, but the duty upon this product was prohibitory. To make the situation more unbearable, .the Canadians were favored with the minimum tariff and in on incredibly short space of time assumed the entire trade in flour with Cuba, which hod eo long been en* joyed by our millers. • Huvmg reasoned in vain with th» Spanish minister at Washington and through Minister Taylor with toe Spaa- Ish foreign office, Secretary Oresham, in casting about for a remedy, hit upon the act of Aug. 10, 1090. This act, while primarily intended to provide for the inspection of meats for exportation and prevent the importation of harmful artt* clee of food, also included in its fifth section a grant of power to the president, probably unequalled In extent by any legislation in the history of congress. Plainly stated it authorised an actual embargo to be declared at the discretion of the president, Oar oommeroe is now being menaced In a new quarter, twin*. ly, in Germany, where the government has begun the imposition of a system of most galling restrictions upon American Imports that can scarcely bo longer tolerated, and it is felt to be necessary to begin the assertion of the reserve power of retaliation lodged in the president, and of course, this necessitates the be. ginning with Spain, the first offender. 11 - - • • 0 Will Commit OtUor I«»<lar«. \ MONTOOHKKY, Ala., Doc. 18,— Repre. tentative 1.
